Cex's sound has evolved significantly since he was a teen in Maryland in the mid-'90s, playing around on his guitar and computer. His early albums were mostly instrumental, brimming with glitchy electronic beats. By the time he was of legal drinking age, he was a well-established solo artist in the IDM world. Soon thereafter, when he started adding emotive lyrics to his music, he broke into the indie world.
Cex is now a full-fledged group, and today Kidwell and his bandmates will drop by Rudyard's to promote the recently released Actual Fucking. The groove-based songs weave live breaks, acid jazz, electronica, disco-punk and Brit-pop. It's safe to say they'll make you dance all the way to the bedroom. Love of Everything and the Wiggins open at 10 p.m.
Fri., June 9, 10 p.m.
